Toucans - Year 6 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Toucans!
Welcome to Toucans and our class page.
I hope you have all had a lovely and restful half term break after our amazing trip to Minydon. The children hopefully came home full of stories of their adventures in Wales and all the amazing activities they got up to. It was an incredible experience for them all. Once term has begun, I will put some photos here, in a gallery, so they can show you a little more of what they did. They were an absolute credit to you and the school in their enthusiasm, reslience, willingness to have a go at everything (even when they felt out of their comfort zone) and always with a smile.
Here is a brief overview of the areas of learning that we will be focusing on during this next this half term.
Please ensure that your child brings in the correct P.E. kit and trainers every Monday morning and that it stays in school for the week. During the Autumn term, it is advisable that children bring warm tracksuit joggers, a zip-up hoodie or jumper (different to their uniform jumper), and possibly a warm hat for when we venture outside on cold days. Please make sure that your child has the correct school P.E. kit and that it is labelled clearly, so lost items can be returned to their rightful owner. Please also provide a water bottle and waterproof coat for your child every day as we never know what the weather might do!
Toucans will continue to be taught by Mrs Austin on a Friday morning.
Homework will be set each Friday afternoon to be handed in the following Wednesday. This may be online homework for your child to complete via online learning platforms, or more usually in Year 6, paper based written work in a book that will be provided. I will message parents each Friday so that you are clear on what the expectations are for that week. Please support your child with completing their homework and handing it in on time as this both supports their learning and prepares them for what is to come at high school.
Daily reading is essential for all children and in Upper KS2 and we advise that you read for 15-20 minutes per day with your child, no matter their proficiency level. Whilst listening to your child, try to ask them questions about events that have happened so far, characters thoughts and motives and to make accurate predictions and inferences based on the text as well as the meanings of words within it.
To keep up to date with what is happening in our class, make sure you regularly check our school's Twitter/X feed.
